Go grey before you makeover your living room with red
Of course red looks great with white or cream, but this urban look is set with a combination of black and grey as the base for this look.
Neutral colours, like grey, help balance red while touches of black help ground the look.
You may want to paint walls grey, consider getting a grey sofa, like the Rio two seater sofa (R7 000) or get existing sofas reupholstered in a classic grey.
Throw on the colour
Now for the fun part – playing with colour.
Dress your sofas with gorgeous embroidered Boho roses scatter cushions, 40x60cm (R199,99), classic check scatter cushions in chilli red, 60x60cm R179,99 and plain chilli red tweedle weave 48x48cm scatter cushions R89,99
You could also add a Boho floral floor cushion 80x80cm (R399,99) to the room for easy-to-tuck-away extra seating when you need it.
Back to black
Another way to add black is with these round nested side tables (R1 800)
